Love is in the air… and fortunately for us, just in time for Valentine’s Day!

Think: glitter, florals, sweets and cocktails. YES. To please all, we’ve packed this post with our recent favorite wedding and non-wedding inspiration. There’s something here for every woman: pretty rose treats for home baking that can double as fabulous wedding favors and the perfect red nail polish and lipstick. Bouquets aren’t only for brides, and every woman needs a fabulous little red dress (or LRD). (For even more inspiration, visit last year’s post.)

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Last year we elected to Celebrate New Year’s in Gold, Silver & Black. This year is much of the same… but spiked with even more dazzle!

And why must New Year’s be the only time to celebrate big? We should all take time here and there to throw a party and celebrate.

Here’s to a glitzy good time this New Year’s Eve. Stay safe. We’ll see you in 2014!
